Whitewater Rafting in Coorg

Everything about

When it comes to whitewater rafting, the brave rush to Barapole and the not so adventurous heads eastwards to the more relaxed Dubare.

Coorg have a few great whitewater rafting locations. Barapole River is located in southwest part of Coorg , fringing the Western Ghats. Dudare is in the eastern part of Coorg. Both are quite popular destinations.
